2015 Pet Policy

News from Good Boy Events! So sorry Rocky, Brady and Lady. You can't hang out with us at the race this year. We ask that you do not bring your furry friends this year. It is for the safety of all.

PARKING: There's plenty of parking around town.  The streets close at 7:45 AM. Please be there early to get a spot


We are asking that you bring at least one non parishable food with you for the Food Gatherers of Ann Arbor.

Last year the race contributed over 1500 pounds of food. Let's break that record.
